  1. There is another thing I kind of miss - template weapons being able to hit hidden deployed troops! Every now and again you'd catch a Ninja or something accidentally in a light shotgun blast.
  2. I do genuinely miss fire vulnerability actually being, you know, a vulnerability for most Tohaa.
  3. How could I forget the Sepsitor Shuffle! Other things I don't miss include: Permanent mono-mine area of effect. Being able to hold back from detonating mines. Lieutenants counting as specialists for taking objectives in ITS. The old Suppressive Fire rules.
  4. I miss Achilles v1 having ARM 6... Totally agree with those above me that the old range bands are not missed. HMGs were way too good and Snipers barely outranged them!
  5. Would seriously consider playing him in Aleph as he's our only specialist AD with a proper gun. Not keen on the Ekdromoi Hacker and this guy is 8pts cheaper, not hackable and isn't reliant on a template weapon.
  6. Loads of TR bots had monomine options. It was totally sweet. With MSV3 you could shoot at camo markers without discovering them first, including in ARO. you could hide multiple troops under a single camo marker and reveal them all in one go. Fun with Antipiodes, especially as I *think* all camo markers were the same size back then?
  7. Hiding multiple things under single camo marker. Absolute nonsense, but occasionally funny. E/M hits shutting off 'high-tech' weapons too. Vector Operator nonsense. Super jumping, with cover, to fire HMGs through smoke with first strike and mimetism for return fire so your opponent is at -12 before range mods. No thank you. Hungries with mines and Caskudas won't be missed either.
  8. I'd settle for our HI not being immobilised by E/M ammo!
  9. You are definitely right, and if we could have a KHD Myrmidon Hacker for 29/0 I would be over the moon. Even so, an Assault Hacker with Stealth and Sixth Sense 2 is pretty unusual and it's a powerful combo!
  10. A lot of people picked Chain Rifle 2nd, and I see a fair few lists around with three Myrmidon Chain Rifles (which I think is a mistake). They are such good minesweepers though... People use Thamyris?! I miss Phoenix's Assault Pistol, that was a good time.
  11. Depending on how badly you think you want the Dactyl, I'd be tempted to replace it (and the Yudbot) with an Agema Mk12. Gives a bit of range and anti-camo punch at the expense of not making your Zayin as resilient.
  12. For the record, over the last two IP events I went second in every single game. The game I lost was vs Logan with my ~15 order list. The rest were all 10 orders. Going second is fine but you need to deploy super carefully and not have many weak links in your list. On the other hand, I took an Achilles list with me this year that I ended up not using because I couldn't shake the feeling that 8 orders wasn't enough to rambo him with on turn one. I'm looking forward to busting out the blonde-mini-TAG this season!
  13. Quoted for accuracy, except I voted Chain/Chain/Hacker. Of course this somewhat depends on the missions and the rest of the list, but I'm assuming two Myrmidon links as I don't think I'd ever take three Myrmidons plus a single officer. You want to take what you can't otherwise get from characters, i.e. filler and specialist support.
  14. Alternatively, just have Machaon as your Lieutenant. Whilst you lose the 'guarantee' of making use of the LT order every turn that Achilles is alive, you can often use it on Machaon still in order to pick up objectives or heal your dudes.
  15. I'm really not seeing the problem here? You can jot the values down on my courtesy list if you like.
